BVSD Parents of Color Council creates a safe and supportive space

The Parents of Color Council was created by two BVSD parents in fall 2019. Working with district leaders, they wanted to have a space to advocate for their children, where they could feel like they belonged and were included. The Council has grown into a supportive and safe space for parents and caregivers of color to share experiences with each other and voice needs and concerns to the district. It is an action-driven group where parents of color work towards creating or improving practices and policies that help to create an environment where kids of color thrive in their schools and the district as a whole.

BVSD Green Star Schools Are Part of a Regional Effort to Reduce Compost Contamination

BVSD’s 41 Green Star Schools, committed to zero waste practices including composting, started the school year with surprising news of an abrupt shift to compost collection practices. BVSD was informed a week before school started that the regional composting facility, A1 Organics, was no longer accepting compost material with any amount of contamination. In turn, Eco-Cycle, BVSD’s compost hauler, also had to enforce the new standard.
